My thesis is based on the premise that verse-novels occupy a marginalised and contested position in contemporary literature: as they tread the generic boundaries of poetry and prose writing, they are always marked by their incongruous nature. This makes for uncomfortable reading as expectations are disrupted and undermined, and, for the poet, the adoption of the verse-novel form becomes both a risky and consciously political move. Each of the verse-novels that I consider is self-conscious of its anomalous generic affiliations and utilises them in order to replicate the postcolonial politics of the text. These texts all engage with the verse-novel form in different ways and draw attention to its problematic and marginal nature. This is used to highlight their postcolonial nature, as they are all concerned with matters of racial and national identity in a world where these categories are complicated. The commonality in these works is their relationships with epic form, in this thesis I identify this as a post-epic mode of writing. My study is based on the relationship between poetic form and postcolonial critique; it focuses upon three texts: the Australian poet Les Murray’s Fredy Neptune, the Canadian poet Anne Carson’s Autobiography of Red, and British writer Bernardine Evaristo’s The Emperor’s Babe. These texts and their authors call for a reconsideration of postcolonialism; this is both demonstrative of a conceptual shift towards global notions of identity, whilst also being problematic in terms of the political commitment of the texts. Each of these works demonstrates an awareness of the contradictory nature of their positions as they shy away from utopian visions. In line with this, my aim is to demonstrate the way in which the self-reflexive employment of experimental poetry compliments an engagement with the transformative aspect of contemporary postcolonial politics.

L'épicéa commun (Picea Abies KARST) est de loin l'essence la mieux représentée au sein de la forêt wallonne. Aussi, dans une perspective de valorisation de la production ligneuse des pessières, est-il essentiel de disposer d'informations aussi complètes que possible sur les caractéristiques des peuplements, sur leur accroissement et leurs possibilités futures d'exploitation ainsi que sur la qualité technologique du bois d'épicéa. Des recherches menées depuis plusieurs années à la Faculté des Sciences Agronomiques de Gembloux dans le domaine de la production des essences résineuses, des inventaires forestiers et de la valorisation des produits ligneux permettent aujourd'hui d'apporter des éléments de réponse à la plupart de ces questions. Nous caractériserons d'abord l'état actuel des peuplements d'épicéa en considérant, d'une part, les surfaces occupées selon divers critères et, d'autre part, les volumes sur pied (paragraphe 2). Nous tenterons ensuite, par simulation, de prévoir la production à venir des peuplements d'ici 20 ans et la quantité annuelle moyenne de matériel exploitable selon deux "stratégies" de traitement (paragraphe 2). Nous présenterons enfin, les premiers résultats d'une étude fouillée portant sur les principales propriétés technologiques du bois d'épicéa (paragraphe 3). [less ▲]

The Barabasi-Albert (BA) model with finite-precision preferential attachment is used to build a wide range of network structures. Spreading epidemics and collective dynamics are investigated on such complex networks. Numerical simulations reveal a transition from an exponential scaling to a power law distribution of link numbers per node along with the increase of the tuning parameter ω. The collective synchronization induced by Susceptible- Infected-Recovered-Susceptible (SIRS) epidemiological process is shown to depend on the topological structure of the network. [less ▲]

Elderly people in nursing home communities are vulnerable to contagious infections, including the influenza virus. Systematic anti-influenza vaccination is an important preventive measure; however, vaccination does not provide absolute protection. We report an outbreak of influenza A infection in a well-vaccinated nursing home population. Several factors can facilitate the occurrence of this type of outbreak. This report mainly addresses the discrepancy between the circulating viral strain and strains present in the recommended vaccine. [less ▲]

The industrialized world is confronted to a real epidemic of metabolic diseases triggered by overeating and sedentarity. Obesity, hypercholesterolaemia, diabetes mellitus and the metabolic syndrome associated to insulin resistance are well-known cardiovascular risk factors which all contribute to increase both morbidity and mortality, to alter the quality of life and to markedly increase the budget of the social security. Preventive measures should be taken urgently in order to correct such a dangerous trend for the public health. [less ▲]

The efficacy and tolerability of intravenous (i.v.) iron in managing cancer-related anemia and iron deficiency has been clinically evaluated and reviewed recently. However, long-term data in cancer patients are not available; yet, long-term i.v. iron treatment in hemodialysis patients is not associated with increased cancer risk. This review summarizes epidemiological and nonclinical data on the role of iron in carcinogenesis. In humans, epidemiological data suggest correlations between certain cancers and increased iron exposure or iron overload. Nonclinical models that investigated whether iron can enhance carcinogenesis provide only limited evidence relevant for cancer patients since they were typically based on high iron doses as well as injection routes and iron formulations which are not used in the clinical setting. Nevertheless, in the absence of long-term outcome data from prospectively defined trials in i.v. iron-treated cancer patients, iron supplementation should be limited to periods of concomitant anti-tumor treatment.

Sensitivity, specificity and predictive values of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for detecting antibodies against bovine leukaemia virus (BLV) were evaluated using a representative sample of 145 serum pools, comprising from 3 to 48 individual sera. The sample was constituted according to the frequency distribution of the negative and positive pools analysed during a screening involving the whole cattle population of Belgium. Sensitivity and specificity were estimated to 88.9% and 100% and the predicted negative and positive values were 99.9% and 100%, respectively. These results indicate the use of serum pools is suitable for the detection of BLV infected herds in eradication campaigns. [less ▲]

An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), using monoclonal antibodies for capture and detection, was developed for detecting bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) antigens in blood samples. The test was evaluated using 761 field samples of known status (viraemic or not). When an appropriate cut-off value was chosen, the sensitivity, specificity, and predictive values of the assay were 100%, higher than the values obtained by classical virus isolation. Correlation with the latter technique exceeded 90%. The ELISA is a good candidate for replacing virus isolation as a reference method for BVDV antigen detection in persistently infected carriers. A method based on the mean of the standard deviation ratio can be used to choose the cut-off value in order to optimise reproducibility. [less ▲]
